Treasures of our seas


Oman has a rich marine heritage which plays a vital part in its economy and society.

Fish is Oman’s leading non-oil export and heritage is at the heart of Oman’s fishing industry as most of the catch is produced by village fishermen working in locally-owned boats on our seas which teem with a rich diversity of marine life.

Oman aims to double fish production in the next 30 years, mostly by introducing fish farming – aquaculture. Our scientific experts have identified the most suitable species for this project.

Oman is working to protect and maintain its marine fish stocks by investing in a huge artificial reef project; introducing fishing seasons for fish and seafood currently under threat; encouraging fishermen to catch new species; and supporting deep sea fishing.
